Kids In Need Foundation

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 9 people are interested

Every year, Kids In Need Minnesota impacts over 98,000 students throughout the Twin Cities Metro and across the state by providing free school supplies to students and schools most in need! We do this via our Resource Center where educators at schools where 70% or more of their students are a part of the Federal Free and Reduced Lunch Program (a national indicator of poverty) can come in and "shop" with us! Everything is our center is BRAND NEW and FREE for these teachers. They're able to distribute supplies to students in their classroom, send supplies home with them, and use them to create happy and healthy learning environments!

BUT, we need your help! Kids In Need Minnesota relies almost entirely on donations of school supplies. Purchase supplies as an individual, or recruit a team to join you and host a "virtual supply drive" with your church, scouts troop, social group, or coworkers to change lives through school supplies across Minnesota!

In regards to donating, you can drop off masks at the Resource Center (2719 Patton Road, Roseville, MN 55113), Monday-Friday 9am-4pm or mail them to us via our partnership with Zappos for Good (shipping is free for boxes under 50 lbs: https://www.kinf.org/zappos-for-good-campaign/ ).

About Kids In Need Foundation


2719 Patton Road, Roseville, MN 55113, US

Mission Statement

By partnering with teachers and students in under-resourced schools, the Kids In Need Foundation provides the support needed for teachers to teach and learners to learn. The Kids In Need Foundation Resource Center, formally known as Kids In Need Minnesota, operates as a free store for eligible teachers serving at area schools where at least 70% of students are enrolled in the federal free or reduced lunch program.


The Kids In Need Foundation provides needed supplies to both teachers and students. In our 25 years, we have distributed more than $1 billion in supplies to kids who would otherwise go without.

Students: When families can barely afford rent and groceries, school supplies just can’t be a priority. Students receive supplies from the Kids In Need Foundation via school distribution events through our School Ready Supplies program and, for those affected by natural disasters, our Second Responder(r) program.

Teachers: On average, teachers spend $564 per year from their own pockets on school supplies for their classrooms. Teachers can receive supplies from the Kids In Need Foundation via one of our 43 Teacher Resource Centers across the country or by applying for a classroom supply Boxes through our SupplyATeacher.org program.
